Singapore Car Sales : 2017


Toyota took over from Nissan to become the best selling brand in 2002 and been the most successful brand since. It lost out to BMW in 2011 and 2012, then Mercedes Benz in 2013 and Honda in 2016, but got the lead back in 2017.

The artificial system of COEs where buyers bid for a limited amount of entitlements to purchase a car favours premium brands. This is especially noticeable when available entitlements are low and their price goes up. With sales up, the mainstream brands noticeably do better on the sales charts.

Mazda continues to consolidate its position but Nissan didn't have the best of years. Opel has been a marginal player in the past but is now making a statement with a massive move up, while Citroën went the other way. Renault had a strong upsurge in sales. A new entrant on the market is the Bolloré Bluecar, a small 3 door electric car.

The chart below shows a % symbol that represents market share. The +/- column is increase or decrease based on the market share of 2017 against the 2016 year.
